Well, we spend 1 week around West Yellowstone, I this area is really not gastronomical paradise, pizza, burgers and some quesadillas are the most you can get around. So what a nice surprise we found couple of miles out of West Yellowstone, on the Highway 20. Food more sophisticated, some... read more

Four of us had dinner here on a Saturday afternoonn. The service and food was excellent. The menu was very good as was the wine list. I had a steak with a jalapeno wine sauce that was one of the best steak combinations I've ever had.

We had a large family dinner - and everyone loved their meals! The chef & staff were exceptional! We also have a few food & gluten allergies, and it was no problem for the kitchen staff to handle! The bison was incredible, the trout tasted like it had just been caught that afternoon! We watched a huge thunderstorm roll by,... More

Picked the Bar N from the reviews on TripAdvisor. The was a great pick for our group of 8. Made reservations and then did the 10 minute drive to the ranch. The road was a little bumpy going in, but this place is very nice and has an amazing view of the mountains. The food and service was perfect. We... More

We try to eat at The Bar N ranch at least once a month during the summer! It is such a fine customer experience. Thank you so much for your service and friendship! The Buffalo Rib Eye and Filet is out of this world good!

All truly great steaks need to meet 3 criteria: tender, flavorful, and cooked correctly. BarNRanch delivers a top quality experience. A rich, garlicky, brandy reduction sent the angus strip over the top. Service was impeccable with hostess/waitress committed to the success of her restaurant.

Based on previous reviews we chose the Bar N for our first meal upon our arrival in West Yellowstone. It was the perfect prelude to our Park adventure. We both tried and enjoyed the Bison Rib Eye along with the potato bacon torte. Bison is chewy meat when compared to beef (which I prefer), but compared to other bison steak... More

We are fortunate to arrive before they close. Tomorrow is the last night to have dinner here until Dec 15th. Love the restaurant. The ambiance is so cool. There is a private room in the cave and numerous stuffed animals. Rocky Mountain goats, Mule deer, Bison, geese etc.
